74-year-old grandma Jewell Turner was leaving her doctor when she rolled down her mini-van window for a man asking for directions.
“And that’s when I felt a knife to my throat,” Turner tells NBC5.
“He said, ‘I don’t want to hurt you, but I want your money. And I will hurt you if I have to,’” Turner continued.
And that’s when he demanded what was in her purse.
Be careful what you wish for robber. Aside from the $1.62 in change she was carrying, she also had a knife.
And… a gun.
“I seen the gun laying there. And I figured that would work better than the knife,” Turner said.
